My car has recently overheated on my way home from work one day, luckily i made it home just in time before it began to smoke. The cause was a busted radiator so i have replaced the radiator, radiator hose(both), thermostat, waterpump and timing belt. But even though i have replaced those things i can drive it around but as soon as i stop and let it idle for a bit it starts to overheat again. What else could be causing it to overheat?

The car is going into gear but not pulling

while driving down the road the engine will stop. If I turn the ignition off and then back on it will start back up.

All lights except for the low beams work. The lights were not left on...

When my car cold cranks, it has trouble idling low, it sputters until it dies unless I two-foot the gas and brake. Usually, after it warms up, I have no more problems out of it. But lately, it still dies at the occasional stop and is becoming more frequent.

Also the brake lights were staying on so we put a pad on the pedal to stop that before the brakes started dtivking.

lately When i put gas in the tank when taking off the cap, it makes like a shallow noise, like if vapors will come out, then you will have to pump it before I can get it started again

the door open,fasten seat belt dash lights come on and go off without reason why is this?

The batteries are fine, the diagnostic shows no problems. When I turn the key, the pump gets activated, the check lights go on, the ignition starts, but no sparking to get the engine going. Have not driven it for 3 weeks. Nothing was wrong before. What to do?

car has 80000 miles engine light did not come on other dash lights work last week driver door wont open from inside recently had Freon put in as a/c wasn't cooling cooloing now but on hot days on highway at 70mph middle vents sweating bad doesn't do it in town don't know if connection but need to have speedometer working and wondering what when on highway have cruise on at 70mph

When I'm backing out or pulling in while the wheel is turned, it's extremley hard to turn and it jerks a little bit. No noise, and power steering fluid is full. Also when I'm going between 65 and 70 the wheel shakes pretty bad. Tire pressure is good and they've been balanced.
